Norrie Sweeps Aside Pouille, Moves Into French Open Third Round

Britain's Cameron Norrie is through to the French Open third round after sweeping aside home hope Lucas Pouille.

He won 6-1 6-3 6-3 to silence the raucous Paris crowd who jeered him in his opening match on Monday.

"I feel good - there have been ups and downs recently but I have a great team around me," Norrie said.

"We really want to play well at the Grand Slams. 

"I definitely improved my game and performance from the first round and enjoyed the match more.

"I'm happy to be through."

Norrie will play either 17th seed Lorenzo Musetti or Russia's Alexander Shevchenko in the last 32.

Should the 27-year-old seal victory in the third round, he will move into the last 16 at Roland Garros for the very first time.

A defeat will make it the third time he made it to the third round and got knocked out. 

Meanwhile, Norrie is the only British player left in the singles after Dan Evans and Jack Draper lost in the first round and no women made the main draw.
